This animation is inspired by a boy I saw leaning on railings, looking over into the sea at Falmouth Docks- on the phone, who was very expressive through his body movements. I sketched him for Cathy's brief to sketch people in conversations, and from that carried on animating and produced this;
Overall I am satisfied with the timing of the animation but think some parts the boy's movements 'pop' too much, like the part his back moves too fast between frames and at the end he seems to shrink. Altogether there are 288 frames derived from 36. I found it useful going back frames, using the same ones twice in reverse, to move him into other poses and positions from the ones like moving his leg.
